Before I get into the really juicy stuff, my belly at 22 weeks and 2 days. I gained a little too much these
past two weeks, so I'm really trying to pay attention to what I am eating. I'm drinking water like it's going out of style, and we have taken all the rich and sugary foods out of the house. Nothing but delicious whole foods for me.
And maybe a little bit of that non-fat peach frozen yogurt I just made with our brand new ice cream maker!! My mom, dad, DH, and I got my cousin and his fiancee a whole ice cream making set. Down to the sprinkles! Well, let me tell you. I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened this up at the in-laws. I'm SO excited. I think mostly because I can really limit the amount of sugar I put in. There is just something about cool, smooth, and fruity that I really crave at night. Now I can get my yogurt serving at the same time!
So, the knitting thing...
We're driving back from our Christmas Weekend Extravaganza, and I say to DH, "Gee, I sure did get a lot of knitting books this year..." and he says, "Yea, I think like 10". I was shocked. "Oh no, not that many!" I said to him (sort of horified that he would suggest such a thing).
Well, with these two pictures alone that is... count 'em... 7 books. I know have a very serious baby book selection. There multiple patterns in each of them that I love. I can't even choose which one I am the most excited for. It is also nice to add some more design type books to my collection. I always feel like these are a good source of information! And, of course there are the good 'ol history books.
So, but the tally to 10. I figure I should really learn a little bit more about the
craft that I love so much. I spend a ton of time doing it, and really know very little about it in the scheme of things. Hopefully these will help me with that a little.
We had a very nice weekend. I spent some time knitting, of course.
I have made some great progress on a Debbie Bliss blanket, the yarn is so soft, and I just LOVE the color. Most of it was knit in the car, although I did get some serious knitting time in at the in-laws.
Once we got home, I started another sweater from the Rowan baby knits book. It has cute scalloped edging and eyelets around the waist for a ribbon. I'm making it out of a periwinkle color, although any picture that I ever take of it will make it look blue. I still love it to pieces and can't wait to knit more on it.
And, in case you were wondering, we did make another ginger bread house this year! Mmmmm.... though I won't be the one eating it.
